Finally, we are over the hump of this semester and springing into summer. The last month of spring semester doesn’t have to be bogged down by finals and cramming. There are plenty of activities to freshen up your schedule around the community. A few FGCU events being held this month include a wing eating contest on the library lawn Monday April, 2nd at 11:30 am, “Cheers to Senior Year” where you can enjoy an evening of root beer floats and slider sampling at 6 pm on April 4th at the North Lake pavilion. If you are feeling French, there a few activities to immerse yourself including a French movie night April 5th at 5 pm in Siedler Hall 116, or you can enjoy a French dinner at the Cohen Center 214 at 6 pm on April 18th. For our lovers of BBQ there will be the “Smoke on the Water” barbecue competition and music festival on April 27th and 28th at the Fort Myers River Basin, general admission is free but for those who want to experience the VIP package it is $75. There is an abundance of activities across our community to help take the stress off in order to finish this semester strong. We live in beautiful southwest Florida, so take advantage of our white sand beaches and natural estuaries to better connect you to your environment. The Reef will be hosting a mix of our own event which you can find in our monthly newsletter and on all of our social networking sites!
